PP imports into Belarus up by 10% in 2019

February 19/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Overall imports of polypropylene (PP) into Belarus rose last year by 10% year on year, totalling 109,400 tonnes. All grades of propylene polymers accounted for an increase in demand, according to a MRC"s DataScope report

December 2019 PP imports to the Belarusian Republic were  9,600 tonnes, compared to 9,800 tonnes a month earlier, local companies reduced their purchasing of PP in Russia. Overall imports of propylene polymers reached 109,400 tonnes in January-December 2019, compared to 99,500 tonnes a year earlier, demand increased for all PP grades, with propylene copolymers accounting for the greatest growth.

The supply structure by PP grades looked the following way over the stated period.

December imports of propylene homopolymers (homopolymer PP) reached 7,300 tonnes versus 7,500 tonnes a month earlier, purchasing of homopolymer PP in Russia dropped under the pressure of seasonal factors. Overall imports of homopolymer PP reached 75,200 tonnes in 2019, up by 8.7% year on year. Russian producers with the share of about 85% of the total shipments were the key suppliers.

December imports of propylene copolymers to Belarus were 2,200 tonnes versus 2,300 tonnes a month earlier, local companies reduced their procurement of injection moulding block-copolymers of propylene (PP block copolymer) from Middle Eastern producers. Thus, overall imports of propylene copolymers reached 34,200 tonnes over the stated period, up by 12.7% year on year.
